7 Days in Osaka | Day 4 Shopping

Spent yesterday walking around one of the shopping district of Osaka. It was a national holiday so the financial district was closed but small shops were open. I would say its very similar to Tokyo shopping but with less people, obviously. Here’s photos from today.

Checked into the St. Regis Hotel which btw is a very nice hotel. Ill be parked here working on some new stuff.

The view is amazing. Night shot below.

Saw this old couple cruising around in this 64ish bug.

Always cool to see temple’s in the middle of shopping areas.

Say a prayer.

Prayer answered. Saw this dad and kid about to purchase this 458.

Harry Winston, Hermes, and a ton of other exclusive brands on Honmachi Street.

I remember while working at Nike in 08 and meeting Mr. Loopwheeler himself. Honestly its really great product but the pricepoint doesnt work stateside. We used to carry the Nike X Loopwheeler line but only the in kids would swoop on them.

Lots of Banksy inspired graffiti in Osaka.

Freshness Burgah.. So good.

Oh Stussy Osaka.

Supreme Osaka. Supreme needs to make specific shirts for their individual stores. We also need to make em for our Illest stores as well.

Style of Tokyo at the moment. Seems like all girls are rocking this style.

Masterpiece Store Sort is very nice. Lots of cool stuff in here.

The Champion and Filson Store is pretty nice too.

Hysterid Glamour store was also nice. So much detail in these stores.

Nike’s FCRB store. No signs & exclusive. Not sure this approach works anymore in the USA but its always nice to see it in Japan.

HOODS. Neighborhood is found inside here. Their collaboration with Porter on the motorcycle helmet is awesome. Makes me want one.

Mini Cooper getting punked by the Po-Po.

When you’re a BOSS, you can park however you like in Osaka. The cops looked at it and walked passed it.

Banksy style.

Osaka Triangle

Another Burgah joint. Mos def!

RARE. 458 Italia in Avio Blue. I guess since its holiday, you either buy a 458 or drive yours around town. This is as rare as it gets.

Beams is a great store.

That style again.

Nice dress.

Go Upstairs Dude!

Saw this in a department store. Porter x.. Really cool.

Oh another 458.

And my favorite, the Mclaren store.

Beautiful night shot of Osaka. Check back tonight when I put up the Work Wheels factory visit.

  1. I really enjoyed this post, its great to see Osaka through the perspective of an automotive enthusiast / Fashion Enthusiast. Cant wait to check out your future and previous post.

  2. Awesome post, Mark. Regarding the tees specific to your store locations, you totally need to get on that! But opening a store on the East Coast is something that should be seriously considered….

    Can’t wait to see the WORK Wheels factory post.

  3. Good stuff! I need to go to Japan soon

    Really impressive seeing the magnitude of swanky store in the Osaka district. Loved the abundance of 458′s, lol. Thanks for sharing.
